When the New Jersey Nets moved to Brooklyn this year, they changed more than just their zip code. They also formed an all-new dance team, The Brooklynettes, who vowed to break the mold with hot new moves and even hotter dancers. And they certainly pulled it off! With choreography by dance celebs like Rhapsody James and Derek Mitchell and some of the coolest looking uniforms in the NBA, these girls are smoking.
Of course, we love them, but it’s so great to see non-dance publications pick up on their brilliance as well! Check out this recent article, complete with fun slideshow, in New York Magazine about the team. The story highlights the fact that these girls are not cheerleaders; they're trained dancers, often with college degrees and impressive résumés. Plus, it gives an insider look at life on the squad. (No cat fights here.) All in all, an impressive look at why dance teamers deserve a whole lot of credit.
You go girls!
